Catholic places to live
« on: January 12, 2021, 12:32:35 AM »
What are some traditional parishes with a good balance of elders and youth, near the coasts or Mississippi? By coasts, I mean Florida, Texas, and Maine. I'm not interested in working out of Seattle or San Diego. I need to know, because unless I learn I'm a terrorist, the coast guard should be approving my application for merchant mariner credentials, and I'll need to live close to my work.

What do you mean by "Catholic"? Novus Ordo or Trad?

I am of the belief that if you attend the Novus Ordo, then you are not a trad. Some people vehemently disagree with that statement.

Do you know any TLM hotbeds along the coasts or Mississippi? I'd appreciate it, because this will help me choose which companies to apply.

Doesn't Mobile have a solid TLM community?

I realize you excluded Seattle, but for the sake of information, the FSSP has parishes in Tacoma (St. Joseph's) and Edmonds (just north of Seattle - North American Martyrs).  The SSPX has a chapel in Edmonds.  There are TLM's offered by priests of the Archdiocese of Seattle but I don't know if any are close to the Seattle or Tacoma ports.  There are independent traditional chapels in the area, including the CMRI in Tacoma.

Do you not have anything better do to?  This is not a sedevacantist forum.  Tradition does not exclude attendance at the novus ordo.  "Where I am, there also shall my minister be".  It is not the other way around.

Near the East Coast: Sanford, Florida has a growing SSPX chapel.
Near the Mississippi and close to Cincinatti, Oh. Is Our Lady of the Assumption in Walton, Ky. Also growing very rapidly.

Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit."

What do you mean near the Mighty Miss? Our daughter lives west of her and it is five hours to cross over at Wickliffe, KY/Cairo, Il(shudder, Illinois). In regards to Walton, grand community there near Cincinnati. You'll have to come visit, good Michael.

Sorry about that! I thought that the Miss ran by Cinci; of course its the Ohio! My bad.

The primo place is that SSPX chapel on the Gulf Coast of Texas.  Galveston county, south east of Houston.  Pretty near to Texas City and not far from Galveston. The people there are Texans.  They also have a school if you have or will have kids that stayed open during COVID and didn't muzzle up.  There at least one Coast Guard station nearby.  Sounds like what you are looking for.

Sanford Florida is growing, but that is away from the coast and near Orlando.  The FSSP has chapels just east of Naples and along the west coast of Florida: Ft. Myers and Venice I believe.  No schools.

When you say Mississippi, do you mean on the Mississippi river?  St. Louis used to have a great ICKSP community.  Don't know about them recently.  Good homeschooling support in that area.
